MG Companion Planting primarily related to what species do well together based upon the symbiotic relationship of root secretions.

The aesthetics of what plants look nice together per se may need to be addressed in a separate thread.

Plants which are genetically closely related usually have a better root secretion symbiosis than plant species which are genetically very distantly related...e.g. plants within the same Family or a closely related Family (e.g., Convolvulaceae and Solanacea) generally thrive better together than plant species which are genetically very distant , although there are exceptions to the general rule...

Plant Families which are also considered to be genetically close to Convolvulaceae include :

Solanacea

Scrophulariaceae

The relative symbiotic relationship of the root secretions could be roughly categorized as symbiotic, neutral , antagonistic.


Hope that helps...
